Remy Siemsen admits that a disappointing spell at Western Sydney Wanderers prevented her loving football, but now she's back at Sydney FC and loving life again.
Siemsen starred with a brace in Sydney FC's Big Blue 3-0 smashing of Melbourne Victory on her return to Jubilee Stadium and says she's very happy to be back where her W-League career began.
“I’m so happy to be back, the group has been so amazing, they’ve been super welcoming and I’ve just been thoroughly enjoying myself since coming back,” she told Sydney's website.
“I noticed that I was really enjoying myself when playing and I haven’t had that feeling for a while with my football unfortunately.
“It was a difficult season for me last year and to come back to start the game and get a few goals shows the hard work is paying off.
“It did become very difficult for me mentally but I think that because I was relaxed and I was having fun the goals just came naturally."
After winning the W-League Young Player of the Year at just 16-years-old, Siemsen is now back in the big-time and searching for recognition of her prodigious talents.
But her first focus is to repay Sydney for the what they've been able to inspire in her so far throughout her career,
“[On golden boot] I would love that, I’m a striker and it’s my job to score goals” she said.
“But my main focus is just to make an impact every time I’m on the field and work hard for my team mates because they’re doing the same thing for me.
“It’s a good goal to have but I’m just taking it week by week so I will definitely be trying to score some more goals this season that’s for sure."
